    What makes this product unique?

    As an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), lactic acid is milder than glycolic acid due to its larger molecular size. It is extra gentle for all skin types. Lactic acid exfoliates the skin surface by breaking down the substance that holds dead skin together, allowing skin to regenerate naturally as it once did.

    The positive results on skin are the most obvious with top quality lactic acid in a pH perfect formulation. Garden of Wisdom Lactic Acid 5% Serum uses corn-derived, clean AHA at an ideal pH between 2.8 and 3.1.

    All Garden of Wisdom products are fragrance free, alcohol free and never tested on animals. Suitable for vegetarians, the environmental-friendly bottles are 100% recyclable.

    What does it do?

    Garden of Wisdom Lactic Acid 5% is a non-abrasive, leave-on exfoliating serum that revitalizes skin’s surface, reduces pigmentation, smooths fine lines, creates visible brightness and helps your skin stay impressively soft. Consistent use reveals firmer-looking, even-toned complexion.

    Who is this product for?

    Ideal for daily use on all skin types to remove dead skin cells.

    Spring Water, Lactic Acid 5%, Dehydroxyxanthan Gum.

    Apply Garden of Wisdom Lactic Acid 5% once or twice daily onto cleansed face and neck. Do not rinse. This pro formula layers beautifully with other serums.

    Tips: Or you can mix 2 pumps with Garden of Wisdom Daily Cleanser for a 2-in-1 exfoliating + cleansing experience.

    Great product!

    I love all products I have tried from The Ordinary, but this has got to be my favorite. I don't have any active acne, but I do have a bit of scarring and this product has helped so much.

    I really like this product. I use it every night and feel like my skin texture has improved. I tend to have cyclical breakouts and this has helped reduce the number on pimples and if I do get them, they dry out much quicker.
